"Spirals Upward #5 is about inspiration. About believing in the magic in the air. About realizing that there is hope. Today is March 1, 1997, and I've been through a lot in the last seven months since Spirals Upward #4 came out. This zine is a collection of writings from other people that have inspired me, or writings from me about things that have made me think and learn a lot." -- first page of Spirals Upward
Quotes and short writings and poetry by influential historical men and women, such as Karl Marx, Margaret Mead, Mateo Roose, and many more. Basil also includes a brief recommended book list.
This is a split zine with Untitled #7. It is shelved under 'S' for Sprirals Upward.
